Williams Sonoma is teaming with Ina Garten to host a virtual series to launch Garten’s new cookbook Modern Comfort Food

During each event, the well-known culinary star will be joined by one of her favorite celebrity friends as she shares behind-the-scenes stories of filming her award-winning television show, writing her best-selling cookbooks, and enjoying food with family and friends at her home in the Hamptons.

On Tuesday, October 20, Garten will be joined by Jennifer Garner and on Tuesday, November 17, she will be teaming up with Katie Couric to discuss her new cookbook via a ticketed virtual event. 


Each ticket for the event will include an autographed copy* of Garten’s new book, Modern Comfort Food, and a unique access code to attend the virtual event. Customers can also purchase a ticket package that, in addition to her book, will include a limited-edition spatula that Garten designed exclusively for Williams Sonoma benefiting No Kid Hungry.

Tickets are available for purchase at www.williams-sonoma.com/inagartenevents.

The deadline to purchase tickets is the Sunday before each event (Sunday, October 18, for the Jennifer Garner event and Sunday, November 15, for the Katie Couric event).

Customers who preorder tickets to the virtual events or purchase Modern Comfort Food cookbook directly through Williams Sonoma before October 6, will be eligible to receive the first-ever downloadable Barefoot Contessa Recipe Index which includes every recipe from Garten’s 12 cookbooks.**

“Ina continues to be a constant source of inspiration for our customers who admire everything she does in the kitchen,” said Ryan Ross, president of Williams Sonoma. “The Williams Sonoma virtual event series is the perfect opportunity for all of Ina’s fans and our customers to celebrate her new cookbook Modern Comfort Food from the comfort of our own homes.”

Williams Sonoma has also partnered with Garten to share her recipes and tips for preparing the ultimate Thanksgiving Dinner. Her full menu along with a list of all of her must-have items for the kitchen is available at www.williams-sonoma.com/inagarten.
